More Tardigrade news...

email update from STO - for those like me who got Lt. Tardigrade as their nouveau tomagochi ;-)Thanks to some generous donations from the local shipyard, the Lieutenant now had his very own starship bridge, of sorts, in his enclosure. We managed to secure three decommissioned consoles, and his very own Captain's chair. It's a little beat up, to be sure, but he doesn't seem to mind, and he's been running

Star Trek Online: Age of Discovery

  Last fall, in what seems like the heels of  the "Victory is Life" expansion some new content dropped on STO, titled "Age of Discovery" which seems to be content for the game that runs concurrent with the show that started yesterday evening, and perhaps with the on-going IDW series on Star Trek Discovery.  With this new content you start off as a cadet in the Discovery era of Star Trek

GoodReads 2018 year-in-review

I had forgotten to have a look at the nice infographic that Goodreads prepares for its users at the end of each year. I read more than I intended to, even though quite a few are comics ;-)

Review: Persepolis Rising

Persepolis Rising by James S.A. CoreyMy rating: 5 of 5 stars Woah! Will this universe ever know peace? Jump forward 20 years, Duarte is back, he is now emperor or some sh*t like that (I know, high council Duarte, just go with me). He is part protomolecule. He sends his protomolecule technology fleet to colonize the remaining human colonies. Just as Holden "retires" and sells the ship to

Swarm Year-In-Review

Well, here is another year-in-review, this time from Swarm (aka Foursquare).  Not surprisingly most places visited and mayorships have to do with every day life ;-)I guess in 2019 I should contribute some photos to the places that I am a "trendsetter" ;-)

Adieu Tumblr

Another one bites the dust - at least for me. In 2018, after 10 years of using Tumblr I decided to stop using this service (it's questionable how long it will be around anyway).  Initially, early in September I lost access to my account.  I had enabled 2FA (2 factor authentication) but none of the the security tokens on my 2FA application would work.  Argh...   After

Xbox year in review

The year-in-review notifications that various social media sites provide can be quite fun.  This year's year-in-review for xbox is a custom made snowball (too bad you can't order one!) based on the various statistics from your gaming preferences.It seems like 2018 for me was the year of Assassin's Creed, with over 200 hours logged into  Origins Syndicate, and Unity.  While this might

Adieu Academia.edu

Well, with 2019 here, and 2018 gone I've bid adieu to Academia.edu. There isn't one thing that really made me quit, but a variety of factors that really combined to make the network feel "sleazy".  When Academia.edu kicked off it felt like a good idea: a social network for academics to see what each other is working on, to share pre-publication versions of their work, heck even ask for feedback

Review: Strange Dogs

Strange Dogs by James S.A. CoreyMy rating: 5 of 5 stars I wasn't sure what to make of this at the start of the novella, but it's an interesting point of view. Seeing the exploratory expedition on a ring world turn into a new home through the eyes of a child. This novella also points to certain protomolecule properties that I am not sure we've seen yet.  I do wonder how these will play
